A massive object interacts with surrounding space. This “spatial interaction” which extends into surrounding space is a “field interaction”.

The interaction may also be represented as reciprocal “potential pressures”. The object “pushes” against space and space “pushes” back.

This assumes that “space” is not absolutely empty.

Potential pressures lead to a definition of gravitational energy potential.

Two massive objects interact (as a binary interaction) through their gravitational potentials. A binary interaction must approximate to the Newton equation.

Certainly space is not empty - there are ions and photons flying all over the place. They will interact with any object.

Then you introduce gravity and sort of get lost out in left field.

The only thing that we detect is the so-called pushback from space, also called gravity. so what experiment do you propose to detect the pressure that triggers gravity?
Even the "space" predating the BB can be thought of to have carried the energy that was needed to be converted to our mass.
Now that would be a pushback.

Don't think so

Fields in space will interact with each other

Stuff in space will be attracted by the gravity

Not counting field forces and stuff, you would have nothing to interact, true space?, but true space has nothing to interact (push or pull or blend)

Pressure is force per unit area. How do you propose this can apply to gravitation?

What is the Nature of these fields ?

What pressures ; in what form are these pressures in ?
